After Jake Paul beat Tyron Woodley by split decision in their August clash, Woodley was champing at the bit to get a rematch. Saturday night on Showtime pay-per-view, the former UFC welterweight champion gets his opportunity, though on short notice.
After initially agreeing to the rematch in the ring after the first fight, Paul instead moved on to a plan to fight Tommy Fury. When Fury suffered a broken rib and chest infection during training, he was forced to withdraw and suddenly the spot across the ring from Paul was open and Woodley was ready and willing to fill it.
In addition to the rematch between Paul and Woodley, unified women’s featherweight champion Amanda Serrano will move up to lightweight to face Miriam Gutierrez in hopes of landing a fight with unified lightweight champion Katie Taylor in 2022. Former NBA star Deron Williams will enter the ring for a four-round exhibition with former NFL star Frank Gore in one of the featured undercard bouts. And a junior welterweight contest between Liam Paro and Yomar Alamo rounds out the four-fight pay-per-view.
